A Commitment to Christ, A Commitment to Excellence

As a part of the application process, 100% of Taylor students, faculty, and staff make a profession of faith. That means every professor you take a class with, every roommate you share space with, and every classmate you bond with claims a commitment to Jesus Christ and agrees to live out their Christian faith. By choosing Taylor, you will join our community of believers who seek to put Christ at the center of everything we do.

And that’s not something we take lightly.

All of our classes—from art to biology—incorporate Christian principles and allow students to see how their faith interact with their disciplines. Through the purposeful discipleship of our faculty, our students are encouraged to pursue their passions and disciplines wholeheartedly, without compromising their faith.

Our Christian liberal arts curriculum also provides valuable cross-disciplinary skills that are sought after in the professional realm. Taylor University graduates have a 98% success rate, meaning nearly all Taylor graduates secure a full-time or part-time job, post-graduate internship, or graduate school placement within six months of graduation.

Affording Taylor

Taylor is an investment in your future. If figuring out how you can afford Taylor is the only thing standing in your way from applying, then let us help you make a plan to fund your education.

96% of Taylor’s student body receives financial assistance from scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study employment. This means that, for most students, our listed tuition price will not be what you pay for your college education, but the value of your degree stays the same!

To make tuition more affordable, donors, many of whom graduated from Taylor, offer generous scholarship opportunities to allow students like you to benefit from the valuable education you will receive at Taylor.
